Last 50 Years Limited Edition Ford Mustang Fetches $170,000 [w/Video]

While not quite a one-off as the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat VIN #0001, there was another special pony car at Barrett-Jackson’s latest auction in Las Vegas.

I’m talking about the final production unit of the 50 Years Limited Edition Ford Mustang, of which 1,964 units were built. The special edition Mustang fetched $170,000 at the auction, with the proceeds benefitting Get Your Heart Racing, a fundraising event supporting Henry Ford Health System’s Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute.

Carrying badge No. 1,964, the final production unit of the 50 Years Limited Edition Ford Mustang was auctioned at no reserve, with the winning bid coming from Jack Fairchild. The winning bidder will have the option to keep the car as the last stock 50 Year Limited Edition Mustang or transform it into a one-of-a-kind replica of an official NASCAR Sprint Cup pace car. As a special bonus, the owner can also have a free Ford Racing supercharger installed to increase the horsepower of the Mustang.

Jack Fairchild also received a VIP package to the Ford EcoBoost 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 16, with the auction package including airfare, hotel accommodations and two VIP tickets to the track. Furthermore, a Ford NASCAR driver will run hot laps in Mustang No. 1,964 ahead of the race.

Based on the 2015 Mustang GT with performance package, the 50 Years Limited Edition model features subtle chrome surrounds for each of the three LED blades that make up each rear light, louvered rear quarter windows, as well as an axel spin finish for the aluminum trim panel used on the dashboard and a special serialized 50 Year Limited Edition badge on the passenger side.
